Our team of experienced professionals is well-versed in the intricacies of the CARES Act and is dedicated to helping our clients identify and optimize the available tax credits specific to their industry and business structure.

Available Employer Tax Credits under the CARES Act

Under the CARES Act, there are several employer tax credits available to eligible businesses. These tax credits include:

1. Employee Retention Credit

The Employee Retention Credit is designed to encourage businesses to retain their employees during periods of economic uncertainty. Eligible employers can claim a refundable tax credit of up to 50% of qualified wages paid to each employee, capped at $10,000 per employee.

2. Paid Sick and Family Leave Credit

The Paid Sick and Family Leave Credit provides relief to businesses that provide paid sick and family leave to their employees due to COVID-19. Employers can claim a refundable tax credit for qualified sick and family leave wages, subject to certain limitations and requirements.

3. Work Opportunity Tax Credit

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit incentivizes businesses to hire individuals from specific target groups, including veterans, individuals receiving certain government benefits, and individuals facing significant barriers to employment. This tax credit can help offset hiring costs and provide additional financial benefits to employers.

4. Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit

The Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit encourages businesses to invest in innovative research and development activities. This credit can significantly reduce the overall tax liability for businesses engaged in qualified R&D initiatives, promoting innovation and driving economic growth.
